110v not working in bath or galley

Just back from a long weekend and we found that three outlets don't work when plugged into shore power: bathroom, galley (under microwave) and galley (forward of the countertop). I suspect a GFI might be on that circuit but haven't found one (I only find one GFI in the coach).

I've checked the power to the breaker and all is well there. There's just no power at these outlets.

Ideas? Any info out there about where the other GFIs might be?

Thanks in advance for any assistance. The wife wants to dry her hair!

Happened to me once. We overloaded the gfi and it would not reset. Took it back all grumpy and the service tech said "turn on the inverter, reset the gfi, turn off the inverter." Works like a champ for me.

Have you checked the breakers on the faceplate of your inverter/charger?

GFCI outlets have to have AC power to them in order for them to reset.

As you can see in the Body, 110 Volt Wiring Diagram for your coach you have 2 GFCI outlets (see triangles with '1' in them), one in the bathroom wired to the circuit breaker labelled RECPS 1 in the inverter sub-panel and one in the galley wired to the RECPS 2 breaker in the same sub-panel. (The 110 Volt Load Center/Auto Transfer Switch diagram for your coach provides the info on the labels used for the different circuit breakers.)

You can see the physical location of the galley GFCI by looking at page 3 of the Body, 110 Volt Wiring Installation diagram for your coach. Page 4 of the same diagram shows the location of the other bath/bedroom GFCI.

Found it. It was a GFI that I didn't know existed. Reset and back in business.

Thanks everyone.

Gfi's do not trip because of an overload...They trip because of an imbalance of current from hot to neutral which it moniters...As little as a 5 milliamp difference will trip them...
